Imagine this: what if your book really knew where you are gazing at – Text 2.0


Text 2.0 is our vision of how reading can evolve on digital devices. Sounds, images and other types of ambient events can be triggered appropriately according to the currently read position. Text 2.0 is interactive, but without the need of explicit control. By a mere reading detection the system recognizes the current point of attention and enables to create an atmosphere full of sentiments, for example by using sounds of wind and water, emotional music or background themes.
But it can do so much more. It augments your reading with the proper information at the right time. Automatically displayed translations, bookmarks, Wikipedia summaries or speech in- and output are examples of already implemented functionality.
We think that Text 2.0 has the potential to become the future of reading.
